The US Center for Disease Prevention has announced that the first case of the Omicron variant has been discovered in the country.
White House Advisor Anthony Fauci confirmed that this is a California patient who has just returned from South Africa, a person who has been vaccinated but had not yet received the third dose.
“We knew it would only be a matter of time before the first infection was registered. We know how to protect the population. Get vaccinated,” recommended the expert.
The person tested positive has only mild symptoms, is in isolation and their health conditions are improving.
